So who watched the Emmy Awards this weekend? I haven't watched an award show in at least three years, so when I finally did this weekend, I was excited to see that my favorite show right now Mad Men won Best Drama.
Have you all seen it? It stars the awesome Jon Hamm (who I first had a tiny crush on from his days on What About Brian), and is set in the stylish 1960s in an advertising agency. I absolutely love everything about the show - from the characters, to the clothes, to the set design. It's really interesting to catch a glimpse of the writers' perspectives of 1960s America; where it was OK for kids to run around playing with plastic bags over their heads, or for people to drink endless supplies of alcohol during the morning meetings at the office. So much has changed since then.
It makes me think about things that have changed since I was a little girl. While I wasn't born yet in the 60s, it's interesting to see how much has even changed since the 1980s. I remember a milkman would always come to our door to bring bottles of fresh milk, and then when we were finished, we'd leave the empty glass bottles at the door. I remember using type writers in early high school (which turned to computers in my last three years of school).
What are some things that you remember from your childhood that are almost unheard of today?
